Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been hooked on genealogy for about 20 years now. Still having fun. Not only for my own family, but also helping others connect with theirs as well. I work full time and then some, but still find time for this passion.

Hope you all enjoy volunteer contributions, and also put some back out there for others. This is how I thank those who have helped me in so many ways.

Keep it going !!
take care - Donna

Albery Leroy Poorman
I thought you might want to add this more detailed obituary for him. Very horrible death he had.

No.3 Mine Carpenter Meets Tragic Death

Slipping on a pile of sawdust and falling forward on a circular saw running at a rate of nearly 3,000 revolutions per minute,
A.L.Poorman a carpenter at No.3 mine was instantly killed about 9:30 A.M. The left side of Poormans body struck the saw and the
teeth rapidly are their way nearly halfway through the stomach before Poorman fell backwards dead almost before he struck the
floor. Poorman was trying to saw a barrel in half at the time he met death. He was standing on a mound of sawdust which suddenly
gave way causing him to slip. He was jerked forward onto the saw by the barrel. Coroner Acton of Roundup was notified of the
accident. Poorman came to Roundup from Glendive the February prior, he opened up a law practice but had very little business, in
June he started working at the mine. He is survived by a wife and 4 children and is said to have relatives in Oklahoma.

Hi, I saw you had added flowers to Robert Keen Hylers Jr's memorial, just letting you know I added his parents Robert Sr & Mary Hyler this morning. They are buried in Hillcrest Burial Park, Pittsylvania Co(Chatham), Va. I saw he was related to you and I have contacted the contributor asking them to link to parents, Thanks, Larry

Miller Cemetery
Hi Donna,
Are you related to or friends of any of the folk buried in the Miller Cemetery in Lauderdale County, MS.
I have lived most of my life in this area and have heard of most of the people in the cemetery and many of them are kin of mine. Would you be willing to transfer some of these to me. If so, I will get you a list.

RE: Mary & Owen McCormick
You're welcome! Always sad to find people have no stones, but it is a nice area where they are buried. This Block is a bit further back, but directly to the north of Abraham Lincoln's Tomb, and on a hilly area. And, the McCormick's are buried just a bit away from the poet Vachel Lindsay and his family.

George E. Null
I appreciated finding the parents of George Null linked to his memorial, as I had not known their names. I have been gathering data on my Yeager grandmother's family since 1989 and his wife, my great-aunt Lucinda Jane Yeager Null was one of my favorite people. She was a widow by the time I knew her, but she spent every Christmas with us. She and my grandmother (Narcissa Elizabeth "Cissie" Yeager Yates Jackson) would get in the kitchen and cook for a week before Christmas and I would be given the job of pecan sheller and coconut grater. It gave me a great chance to hear all the old family stories as they remenisced. My husband and I visited the Miller Cemetery after Christmas in 1994 to find Aunt Lucy's grave. I took photos but yours are better.

Decker Connection
I see you are connected with John Decker. Relative???? My wife's great grandmother is Lulu Genevieve Sanders who we think is the daughter of (id missing)and Mary Idella Goodson. Mary then married Henry B. Decker. Any connection.

RE: Andersonville, a Success Story
Hi. Just in from a big B'day party for our son. Big because it ws the first in several years that he was home with his family for it. Had to check e mail one time before hitting the sack. So, I am pleased that I did. I had a lot of trouble with mouse double clicking last Sept. so I will delete one of the duplicate photos.
The "Very Best" to you and all yours, Bud
